Remove the plastic trim cover inside at the front where the latch secures to the top of the front screen, then remove the 2 small plugs in the rear interior trims behind rear seats on side panels. Using the special allen key tool turn the catches approx 90 degrees to release the rear of the hood, then simply lift off and back

The most serious common faults are with the standard 3.4 engine in the early 996 Carrera models (not applicable to Turbo engined vehicles which is a different engine design):
1. The engine cylinder liners develop hairline cracks. (Engine replacement or rebuild required).
2. The intermediate shaft bearings fail in these engines (a well known design fault). Failure requires engine replacement.
3. The rear main seals in the engines fail as exhibited by a slowly worsening oil leak. The seal needs to be replaced when they leak. It's an expensive job.
Problems 1 and 2 are serious have resulted in many engine replacements. Problems 2 and 3 remained when Porsche upgraded to the standard 3.6 engine in the series two 996 Carrera models (problems not applicable to Turbo engines)..
There are a few other issues such as Air Conditioning condensers that clog up with road debris and eventually become porous and fail.

I had this problem with my 2004 turbo, I took it to my dealers and they said they it would need a whole new PCM unit as the disk drive was also faulty, happily they replaced it under warranty and didnt charge me a thing.
Bright green fluid is usually coolant. In some cases washer fluid is green too but it sounds like it's likely coolant. Better get that checked out by a professional before it becomes a bigger problem. Good luck!
